The club dinner took place on Saturday 8th February which was fantastically organised by Les Bailey and Phil Parsons. It was the biggest turnout yet for our club dinner showing the growing number of members that have joined the club over the past few years. The Vale Golf Club were excellent hosts and guests enjoyed a lovely three course meal and an excellent talk from triathlon commentator and coach Steve Trew.
The club dinner is a chance to look back at the success of the club over the past year and to award the club trophies. The Scimitar trophy for the most improved junior went to James Sheldon and the Arran Stevens trophy for most improved triathlete went to Carl Kendall. The club points champions were Rachel Ward and Lee Oliver. Michelle Parsons won two awards for most outstanding international performance and female triathlete of the year. Neill Crump won the male triathlete of the year award. Nixie Turner once again won the outstanding junior female award for her excellent performances at the British Triathlon Youth Super Series and Ben Harle won the outstanding junior male award. The Howard Peters trophies were awarded to Gill Jubb and Russell Kingston.
